The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in "Healthy" Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain I thought this was going to contain some interesting history on the interactions between humans and foods, maybe some fun botany facts and it did, for about 50 pages Thereafter, I found it to be a self congratulating, Santa Barbara style food fad book I pretty much gave up after seeing the phrase, My good friend, Tony Robbins twice in 20 pages Stop Just stop People Eat food that isn t processed, and try to keep it local and organic Cook your food at home Limit grain intake, possibly I thought this was going to contain some interesting history on the interactions between humans and foods, maybe some fun botany facts and it did, for about 50 pages Thereafter, I found it to be a self congratulating, Santa Barbara style food fad book I pretty much gave up after seeing the phrase, My good friend, Tony Robbins twice in 20 pages Stop Just stop People Eat food that isn t processed, and try to keep it local and organic Cook your food at home Limit grain intake, possibly legumes if you find they upset your stomach or skin Oh, and nightshades are kind of toxic Now, pay me millions As a scientist, the claims presented in this book struck me as over confident Science almost never gives clear cut, black and white answers, and dietary science is certainly no exception. Plants have an impressive array of defense tactics to protect themselves from predators of all shapes and sizes including humans Stephen Gundry believes that these defense strategies make the seemingly virtuous plants that we consume every day fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds far less good for us than we assume Dr Gundry outlines the health hazards posed by lectins The main sources of lectins in the American diet include conventionally raised dairy products, beans, and other legumes, wheat and grains, and specific vegetables and fruitsWith a full list of lectin containing foods and simple substitutes for each a step by step detox and eating plan and easy lectin free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way [EPUB] ✼ The End (The 30-Day Collective Book 1) ✿ Ellen A.

other diseases such as heart disease is a big buzz topic in health these days Gundry is a Cardiologist and while he may have had success with many patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases, repairing the body there is a slant to his clinically proven writing I don t like Its also not an easy diet to follow because it explains how eating the wrong plants at the wrong times hurts our health but there was so much confusion..because one can eat these same foods sometimes at the right times Who wants to eat thinking about which phase you are in Phase 1, 2, or 3 If I take out beans in phase 1 I m rewarded to add them back in phase 3I got a few headaches reading how wishy washy he was on one page and restrictive on another I yelled at him a few times to myself of course make up your mind Mr Dr Gundry THERE is SOME GOOD INFORMATION learning basic information about Lectins and inflammation but I have a dozen other books MUCH BETTER easier to follow no yelling back at the book And when it comes to Autoimmune disorders I m not going to bounce back experimenting testing when to eat beans and when not to rewards is such a yucky word anyway Gundry drove me bananas I m now reading Genius Foods by Max Lugavere Its friendly readable written so that anyone can understand it AND ENJOYABLE calming for the brain so it must be better for my immune system too Not a big fan The diet seems incredibly difficult to maintain Plus, I think there s some contradicting information He states that research shows that the longest living people are vegans, followed by vegetarians, and so on Yet he says all of these fruits and vegetables are so bad for you Well, those are the foods those vegans are eating There were a couple of interesting things that I took away from this book, but it s incredibly wordy and something better left to skimming, rather than rea Not a big fan The diet seems

incredibly wordy and something better left to skimming, rather than reading word for word This is a book that will find you at the doctor s office with a host of problems I can t believe a medical

Despite being professionally packaged by a big publisher, this book is simply a cheap TV infomercial in print A simple Google search reveals all the refutations and links to real studies Gundry s claims were a conference presentation, not a peer reviewed study published in a journal On page 55 Gundry claims that most of his stage 3 and stage 4 cancer patients got better, all without a single publication, or case study Don t buy these infomercial claims To dismiss fast food, fatty meats, and sugars, and blame vegetables is outrageous and Harper Collins should be ashamed of themselves for publishing this junk science collection of fictional conspiracy theories Just go to your public library and look up the real studies in the databases that advocate for a plant based diet You won t find any of Gundry s claims in the scholarly journals and studies, actually you won t anything by Gundry at all What a sad attempt to rake in profit, as if medical doctors in America don t make enough cash One of the most pretentious books I have ever read The author seems to have no scientific self criticism His word are his truth and the ONLY truth That s the feeling I get when reading He talks down other diets and presents what now seem to me to be unsubstantiated evidence Just search the internet for reviews of the book, there are really good ones, totally disecting his so called

amateurs and so on The list goes on Please, be a bit humble Yes, maybe this diet has worked for many people But yes, as one reviewer says of course you ll loose weight and maybe heal many problems but that s no wonder since the diet cuts out almost any food you can imagine and only leaves a short list of relatively obvious things I do believe that there IS truth and good advice in the book But the way it s served like an infomercial it just sounds like somebody s trying to sell me something It s a nice preaching, some useful information, some obvious non truths check the reviews Also some facts presented as obvious truths, but with no reference to studies or anything to prove that Again, just search for and read the excellent reviews done Not recommended because of the amount of questionable content and the format of infomercial Current seems scientific but is really crap du jour Oh, and the author sells expensive supplements, but I m sure that s just a coincidence Current seems scientific but is really crap du jour Oh, and the author sells expensive supplements, but I m sure that s just a coincidence I m always leary after reading books like this, because by the time you re done reading it there really isn t much left to eat I found some of it interesting, but still unsure of the lectin scare I won t stop eating whole foods like tomatoes and potatoes which don t seem to be a problem for me anyway This diet is very different from Medical Medium s protocols, and who doesn t love fruit all year round Fruit is something I can t live without This doctor s diet just isn t

the book and there s a lot of interesting information here and some good recipes I m just not sure if I believe all of what he states.3 Plants are both our bane and our salvation There is a lot of really interesting information in this book I ve been a vegetarian for a long time, and I m exactly the kind of vegetarian he describes in this book I think I m eating healthy because I eat fruits and vegetables and lots of beans and whole grains Apparently, according to this, most of what I have in my freezer and cupboards is all wrong for making my gut bugs happy One of the many surprising things I learned was that because we Plants are both our bane and our salvation There is a lot of really interesting information in this book I ve been a vegetarian for a long time, and I m exactly the kind of vegetarian he describes in this book I think I m eating healthy because I eat fruits and vegetables and lots of beans and whole grains Apparently, according to this, most of what I have in my freezer and cupboards is all wrong for making my gut bugs happy One of the many surprising things I learned was that because we can eat basically any fruit all year long instead of when certain foods are in season, our body is constantly thinking it has to store up fat for winter Once you get through the first six weeks of this program, you re allowed to eat a little fruit, but you should think of it like dessert He essentially asks that you hate him for the three days of a really challenging diet to correct the problems in your gut, and continue to hate for the first two weeks of the program, and by six weeks it will become a habit and you ll feel better, sleep better, shed weight, and your skin will look better, too I already knew that cow s milk was designed specifically to make calves as fat as possible as quickly as possible I also knew that all the steroids and anti biotics that are put into the feed of cows and chickens is something that, when humans eat the animals, they re also eating the drugs the animals consumed I thought as a vegetarian, I was safe from that, but I didn t take into consideration that the farmers feed animals corns and grains to fatten them up even though cows should eat grass and chickens should be eating bugs and natural seeds, and to force animals to eat foods their bodies don t want, that s part of the reason the farmers have to inject them with a lot of drugs I didn t think about eating grains myself as a way to fatten myself up.I d encourage you to read this book from beginning to end before you go on any major trips to the grocery store, because if your kitchen is anything like mine, you probably have most of the wrong stuff I d also encourage you to download this book electronically so you have the Do foods and the Avoid foods right on your phone for when you re at the grocery store.I mentioned to an acquaintance that I was reading this book, and he said he d also read it and lost 39 pounds That s pretty inspiring when you know someone personally that s had success Dr Gundry explains why some diets seem to work temporarily An ex boyfriend of mine was always on the paleo diet trying to lose weight It s super fun when a vegetarian and a paleo adherent date We re still friends, and I saw recently on social media he s heavier than ever and has been diagnosed with diabetes In America, when you go to the doctor, she ll ask you if you smoke and how much you drink, but other than that, she doesn t ask about the foods you eat or what non alcoholic beverages you consume In my twenties I was having stomach problems, and, without asking me how much water I drank or what foods I ate, she diagnosed me with IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome I kept reading books on health and nutrition and figured out on my own that I didn t have IBS, I had I don t eat enough vegetables fiber and drink enough water syndrome Gundry points out that, in America, we spend 8300 a year on health care and only 2200 on food In Japan, they spend 3300 and 3200 on health care and food, respectively His warnings about several over the counter and prescription drugs were terrifying Dr Gundry himself used to be overweight despite a rigorous workout schedule and eating mostly vegetarian with small amounts of fish and chicken He also used to drink eight Diet Cokes a day, and he explains how the sweetness in a Diet Coke was tricking his brain and making it upset that it wasn t getting actual sugar, so it kept telling him to go back forsweetness, i.ecalories that would anger the good gut bacteria and make the bad gut bacteria throw a party Even after reading the book, I don t completely understand all the stuff about the gut bacteria, brain function, Omega 3 and Omega 6s, but I did understand how we raise crops in this country heavily doused in Roundup I ve watched documentaries about corporate farming in this country and the evil, evil Monsanto that owns way too many members of congress Even the USDA is largely comprised of lobbyists for big business, which is why we had years of Milk, it does a body good, advertising despite the fact that a large percentage of indigenous Americans and black folks can t digest cow s milk, and even plenty of white folks have trouble with it Soy milk has other issues The almond milk I drink has sugar in it, so I need to make some changes there, too He doesn t talk much about alcohol other than to say don t drinkthan a glass of wine, but he also lets us drink coffee and tea, and I feel like I can deal with any plan that enables me to drink coffee I don t have underlying health issues like many of his success story patients with autoimmune diseases or diabetes and so on, but yes, I d like to lose weight and not be lethargic and naturally fight low moods, so I ll give this a shot I ve only tried two recipes so far I m a terrible cook and one was edible and tasted exactly as healthy as it is the other was inedible
